At The Citizen, You Can Now Eat a Whole Pig for Breakfast
It’s been a great time for brunchers in Boston lately. First Area Four debuted brunch this past weekend, and now The Citizen Pub in Fenway is extending its popular whole suckling pig roasts to Sunday brunch for diners with a massive appetite—or dire hangover.
“We just figured out a way to cook a second pig overnight on Saturday,” owner David DuBois told me in an email. While I don’t envy the pour soul roasting a pig at 2 a.m., I wouldn’t mind throwing back a few oysters, digging into a platter of tender pork, and drinking a Bloody Mary on a Sunday morning.
Pig roasts can be booked for a minimum of 10 people, and a maximum of 21 (though with that number the party will be at multiple tables); the price ($38 per person) and fixings of shellfish and sides like broccoli gratin and whipped potatoes will remain the same as the evening roasts.
DuBois says that the restaurant already has two roasts lined up for Sundays. Call 617-450-9000 to book yours (per DuBois, only one pig roast will happen each Sunday, so plan ahead). Brunch hours at The Citizen span from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
